Marion Weiss is the Graham Chair Professor of Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design and is cofounder of WEISS/MANFREDI Architecture/Landscape/Urbanism, a multidisciplinary design practice based in New York City. Known for the integration of architecture, art, infrastructure, and landscape, her firm won the American Academy of Arts and Letters Academy Award for Architecture, AIA New York’s Gold Medal, and the Architectural League of New York’s “Emerging Voices” award, acknowledging the distinct vision of the firm. The work of her firm has been presented and exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Design Centre in Essen, Germany, the National Building Museum, and the Louvre Museum. She has also taught at Harvard University, Yale University, and Cornell University.
Her firm’s Olympic Sculpture Park for the Seattle Art Museum, winner of an international competition, was awarded Harvard University’s Veronica Rudge Green Prize in Urban Design, the first United States project to receive this award. Her firm’s Diana Center, an arts building at Barnard College, won a National AIA Honor Award and best building in New York State in the 2010 AIA Honor Awards. Weiss/Manfredi recently won a national competition to redesign the Washington Monument Grounds at Sylvan Theater and their Brooklyn Botanic Garden Visitor Center recently opened to the public. Their most recent monograph, WEISS/MANFREDI Surface/Subsurface, was published by Princeton Architectural Press.
Each year we ask East Bay firms to help underwrite the expense of bringing in a renowned architect to Cal. Through the firms’ generosity we are able to present international architects such as Andrea Leers, Fuhimiko Maki, Craig Dykers and Merrill Elam without charging for the lecture. One benefit of sponsorship is attendance at the lecture dinner. The traditional wine reception and dinner precedes Ms. Weiss’s lecture. Dinner guests have reserved seats at Wurster Hall–a must for this popular lecture series!
Funds to underwrite the costs of this program are provided by the following 2012 sponsors:
Women’s Memorial and Education Center
